Mary Worth 916

As Jill squeaks out one last comment, Moy and Giella squeak out one last nominee for the 2010 Worthy Awards.

And after Maude's comment yesterday, we may need to create a new Worthy Award category: Post of the Year.

Today's Full Strip

This panel would make the best t-shirt ever.

Kudos to Maude for yesterday's super poem.

Wanders, are you nominating the day's strip, the "Exit" sign, or Adrian's lament about the open bar?

Wait...Adrian thought about NOT having an open bar at a private party?

TeacherPatti said...

I nominate Maude's poem as best post of the forever :)

Just look at the "art"work in today's strip...Jill's face is all stretchy and Adrian's finger is kind of...just there. Why include that finger at all? Why??? WHY????

Chester the Dog said...

Will Jill drive herself home? And, I disagree, having an open bar WAS the best idea! Without it, we whould not have seen the real Jill. And no establishment would let a drunk patron carry an open bottle into the street. Is this Three Trees?

Shmoopie said...

Yeah, that finger! To me, Mary Worth has always been the comic strip depicting the Most Unnatural (and sometimes Downright Pysically Impossible) Gestures. But I need to defend today's drawing. Adrian just has a little something stuck up her nostril. It just won't come out, no matter how hard she digs.

Jared said...

Scott will escort Jill to the street, then arrest her for public intoxication. That's how he rolls.

Maude Findlay said...

I love Drunk Jill. She's the most entertaining Mary Worth character ever. Even sober, she was a riot- but now that she's letting it all hang out, it's even more hilarious. I can't wait till the next Charterstone pool party! I hope Jill gives everyone a piece of her mind!

So the moral of the story that we have been so eagerly awaiting is that open bars are a bad idea. Kudos to Karen Moy for such sage advice as we approach Christmas and New Year's celebrations. I believe that lives have been saved.

I agree with Shmoopie that Adrian seems to be digging for, um, gold in that thar nostril. But we must keep in mind that in the Worthiverse, face and nostril touching are just alternative ways of expressing deep emotion.

What's all the fuss about Jill's pilfering that bottle of ketchup wine? If she wants it that badly, let her have it! When she sobers up, she can pour it on her pathetic Hungry Woman frozen dinners.

Vicki said...

Is anyone else concerned that Scott and Dr. Jeff are about to throw Jill down a flight of stairs!? (I mean, are we absolutely certain this shindig is on a FIRST floor?) Maybe we should call the cops or something!! Oh, wait...

Dave in Parma said...

Does this mean Jill won't be at the head table at the wedding?

Emmy said...

The last panel absolutely made my day :P It was perfect. And Barbara is right; that would make the best t-shirt, haha.

Re: "An open bar was not the best idea." -- Perhaps the best Worthy Award nominee for Understatement of the Year.

Elaine said...

Wait - are they smashing Jill's face in that door, prior to tossing her out on her nose?? Some new kind of detox treatment, perhaps... Hey, why don't we have a group t-shirt!! That would be most excellent!

Diving Off A Cliff said...

I really want to know what *@^%$# is. Which particular cuss word best fits this scene? Or do the numerical keys these symbols belong to spell out a cryptic message for Adrian alone? "826543! My room number plus the locker number at the bus station!"

dam dr jeff is cheap he gets a catering hall with no workers you serve yourself you do your own security . i know they had the one waiter but he was moonlighting from the bumboat and in no condition to serve.

Robert said...

Love Jill's version of "The Scream" she's doing in the doorway. Can't wait to see her behavior at the wedding! You know Adrian isn't smart enough to consider removing Jill from the bridal party.

Imogene said...

Scott is going to put Jill in the back seat of his Detective car, then he and Dr. Jeff will drive her to Mountview to be checked into the secure lockdown wing. Imagine how surprised the other administrators will be when they see who the patient in the rubber room is!

And, Adrian, an open bar is ALWAYS a good idea.

I've enjoyed a lot of hilarious criticism about Mary Worth comics.
This is the first time the comic itself has actually
gotten a laugh out of me :)

Well played, Moy and Giella...
